KnightsEnd

Synopsis:
Bruce sought out Lady Shiva to train him back into combat shape. He quickly gained much of his skill back, but still refused to kill. Bruce asked Robin and Nightwing to follow Jean-Paul for him. The Batman's protégés break into the cave and set up surveillance equipment to monitor AzBat. AzBat finds a St. Dumas medallion that belonged to LeHah (his father's killer), and believed LeHah was still alive. As Bruce continued to pass Shiva's tests, becoming stronger and quicker, Jean-Paul became more and more brutal as Batman. Bruce passed Shiva's final test and re-entered the cave with Robin and Nightwing. Once again Bruce Wayne was Batman. He, Robin, and Nightwing tracked down AzBats. The two Batmen dangled from a helicopter fighting. The ensuing battle was witnessed by Bullock and other cops. After AzBats fell burning into the river, Batman is blown up in the booby-trapped Batmobile. Nightwing attacked AzBat; Robin cleared the bridge. Azrael (his costume no longer resembling Batman) returns to the cave to find Batman waiting for him. They fight again, until Bruce can force Jean-Paul to take off his armor. Jean-Paul realized that he wasn't the Batman, Bruce forgave him and told him to leave. Batman and Robin, a team once again, spoiled a museum robbery. After leaving Wayne Manor and the Batcave, Jean-Paul took with some homeless people and began to see everyone as people, just like him.

Notes:
Note: Even though they are listed as included within the tpb, neither Catwoman 13 nor Showcase '94 10 are actually collected. Catwoman 13 does feature the "Knightsend Aftermath" logo on its cover, and Showcase '94 10 obviously carries on the storyline.

Synopsis:
Bruce Wayne contacted Lady Shiva. She agreed to get him back into shape. She killed one of the deadliest masters in martial arts wearing a bat mask. After two weeks of training, Bruce finally got a strike in on Shiva. She gave him her bat mask and told him where to go. Each of the master's trainees unknowingly were now after Bruce (knowing only their master was slain by the wearer of the mask). The first attacked with chains; Wayne defeated him. Shiva finished him when Bruce refused to. Under Robin's surveillance, Jean Paul continued to spiral downward. Stopping some gun runners, Az-Bat recovered LeHah's medallion of St. Dumas. Bruce defeated another master.
